UNStudio create futuristic design for first Dubai Museum of Middle East Modern Art

Dubai is set to embark on a cultural journey as the realisation of UN Studio's Museum of Middle East Modern Art begins, the Ruler of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced this week. It will be the first museum of its kind in Dubai and will be located on the banks of Khor Dubai in Culture Village.

The futuristic, elegant form created by UN Studio's design is sleek and bold in its massing leaning over passers-by as though it were the bow of an enormous ship. Dubai Properties Group are to develop the Museum's design which was commissioned by His Highness Sheik Mohammed following the establishment of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and the launch of Khor Dubai which is designed to celebrate cultural diversity in the UAE. In addition to the Museum the UAD 50 billion Culture Village will hold 40 million sq ft of land and will include an amphitheatre, an exhibition hall and smaller museums.
